The Art of Creativity

Kenneth Kraft, professor of religion studies at Lehigh, was quoted in an article on a look at creativity and how it can be encouraged. "In Zen the word 'mind' is also a symbol for the consciousness of the universe itself,” says Kraft, a Buddhist scholar who has spent many years in Japan. "It's taught in Zen that one performs an action so completely that one loses oneself in the doing of it," Kraft explains. "A master calligrapher, for example, is working in a no-minded way…No-mindedness means not to have the mind filled with random thoughts like, 'Does this calligraphy look right? Should that stroke go there or here?' It's just doing. Just the stroke."

Rightful Liability?

Perry Zirkel, professor of education and law in the College of Education at Lehigh, wrote an article about the increasing demand on special education. In the article he cited a specific case of an Ohio kindergartener who was diagnosed with autism, making him eligible for an early intervention program under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). “This Coolidge case illustrates the competing concerns of the individual child with a disability under the IDEA and the increased interest—in the wake of Columbine and 9/11—in school safety,” Zirkel wrote.

At Zoellner Arts Center on Sunday at 3:00, there's an opportunity to hear a remarkable set of songs by the composer generally agreed to have been the master of the art song, Franz Schubert.

The cycle of 24 songs, all set to poems by Wilhelm Müller, depicts not a physical journey, but rather the dark emotional journey of someone disappointed in love.
